Hands-free wire lubrication system

Available in five packages, the SoaperMonkey hands-free system deposits lubrication directly onto all types of wire pulls, including vertical up, vertical down, and horizontal. A three-speed pump motor powers the system and allows for the proper amount of lubrication to be applied based on conduit size and pulling speed. The system fits any size of threaded or non-threaded conduit and comes with a one- or five-gallon pump that works with all brands of lubricant, except those with silicone balls. It also features a 12VDC battery, 12VDC charger, and carrying case.
